Stringwise! 2019

Music for Everyone’s 27th annual youth string weekend course and concert, Stringwise! gives you the chance to play a wide variety of music for strings and to take part in a range of orchestral groups and workshops, all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

This year we present a programme of DANCE! Guaranteed to get you moving! The Stringwise groups will perform a toe-tapping mix of music, concluding with a grand finale piece incorporating all players, Simple Gifts arranged especially for Stringwise! Whether you have been playing for years or have only recently started having lessons on a stringed instrument, this is for YOU! The orchestras and workshops will be led by a team of experienced string teachers and there will also be a large support group of adult helpers and organisers.

Players will be divided into four groups: 

Stringwise 1 (beginners – open strings and first fingers) £25
Stringwise 2 (Grade 1) £26 
Stringwise 3 (grades 2 – 3) £27
